    Another similar recipe that I have says 450 degrees 20-25 minutes...

    The recommended temperature of 475 degrees must be wrong! The veggies were starting to burn at the 10 minute mark; thank goodness I checked on them then. Usually I roast veggies at 400 degrees temp. Otherwise this was OK. Not bad, not amazing. But it's nice to have something different to do with broccoli.

    This came out pretty dry and surprisingly bland. I don't recommend it. I'm sure there's dozens of other veggie sides on here that would be much tastier!

    I made this as a side for some friends and my hubby and we all agreed it was just, ok. I added some extra sharp cheddar cheese to the left overs and it's super yummy though.

    This was really easy to make and resulted in deliciously, lemony veggies. I didn't get much garlic flavor but it tasted great anyway. Mine cooked in less than 25 minutes.
